Ice Ice Baby

You know the song. you know the drill.
duunnnn dunnn de dunnn dun.
Stop. Collaborate and Listen.
Ok, perhaps ONLY I randomly sing that song.
Do you have an ice thing?
An ice choice?
An ice fettish love?
My people do.
I enjoy my ice. But my people LOVE their ice.
A few years ago the Coach and I purchased an ice maker.
I know. Normal people use the ice maker in their freezer. But, we are NOT normal people.
This was a big deal. There was research. There were meetings. Discussions.
We settled.
We didn't get the premium ice maker.
We got a good ice maker.
BUT….
 Out there in the world, we ON occasion come across the ultimate ice.
ULTIMATE {pellet} ICE.
*swoon*
And when we do, I have to share with my people.
You know, just so they know what they are missing.
I had this delicious glass of ice while in Chicago. I shared this pic with my girls and they both ewwed and awed. 
Ice envy.
It's what we do.
Word to your Mother.

OH, I love me some pellet ice! (Of course we call it rabbit pellet ice because...well.)

Nothing better than a Coke with pellet ice!!!

how goofy. :) where i worked, there was one ice maker that made ice differently than all the others. folks would come from other floors just to get that ice - they called it 'sonic ice' after the drive-in place.

i didn't know about this obsession... but this is my favorite kind of ice, too!!!! make sure you list this on the tips for chicago list you are making for me!!

Mary said...

That's definitely my favorite ice!

Pam said...

Sonic ice is the best! Pellets but a little bit soft. Nice. : )

I call that type of ice 'rabbit turd ice' and it is the BEST!!! I will have a rabbit turd ice maker when I hit the Powerball!

I love ice too. Unfortunately, our ice maker has been broken for several years.

Best ice ever. I am an ice pellet appreciator.

I'm not a big fan of ice in any way. I loved snowcones when I was a kid and that's about it. I don't even put ice in my water.

I love iced beverages in the warm weather, but I have to be careful, because (in our GLORIOUS MIDDLE AGE) those teeth which seemed to be made of steel no longer are invincible. The ice, she crushes middle-aged teeth. The dentist, he charges a fortune to fix them. The best icy thing of all? A granita. An icy drink, made in a slurpee-type of rotating thing, composed of latte and chocolate. Ohmygoodnessgraciousgood.

I like the ice that you can stick a straw through :)

You must live in a warm place....we had visitors from the south last summer who were digging in our freezer for ice and we had none....we don't even think about it! It has been 30s overnight lately, there is plenty of ice outside ;)

I love fancy ice! I was happy when our ice maker on our freezer broke so I could buy bags of ice at the store instead.

Stephanie said...

LOL I totally get this! Our fridge makes the fancy ice two ways. Cubed and crushed. I loovvvee it!

ChiTown Girl said...

Well, DUH!! How many times do I have to tell you...EVERYTHING is better in Chicago!!

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

I love my ice, ice, baby! Don't have an ice maker and just to lazy to make in trays so I buy it in bags from a machine.

troutbirder said...

We still do it the old fashioned way. Put ice cubes in a heavy bag. Smash them with a mallet. Then make "green slushes".....:)

We have Canadian winters. So naturally I dislike ICE. brrrrr. Just the thought of it.
